According to a recent survey, 57 percent of American said God could save a patient even if doctors said it was futile. Also nearly 20 percent of doctors and other medical workers said God could reverse a hopeless outcome. I am amazed (and glad) that the numbers are this high.

I think the fascinating question is how many of that 57% have actually witnessed one of these miracles? I am guessing very few, yet the hope and belief is still there. I have hope and faith that God can cause a miracle, but, the reality is that such things are rare. I have personally not witnessed any miracles like this (but have witnessed others) but have heard plenty of anecdotal stories (none of which I have verified). It makes me wonder why God intervenes so infrequently in matters of life and death. Perhaps He is bound by some law(s) that prevent Him from doing so?
